Update of the German inventory for NMVOC emissions resulting from the use of solvents and solvent-containing products for the reporting years 2019 and 2020 (Project No. 110387).

In order to fulfil the reporting obligations arising in particular from the UNECE Multicomponent Protocol (Gothenburg Protocol) and the EU NEC Directive, NMVOC emissions resulting from the use of solvents are calculated annually in Germany, other EU member states and for the EU in general. In Germany, emissions are calculated using the German Solvents Emission Inventory, the “NMVOC Inventory”. The inventory used for the annual calculation of the German NMVOC emissions is the subject of this expert report. It has been reviewed and adjusted with regard to possible updates and enhancements, described in terms of its structure and use and calculated using the available statistical input data for the inventory years 2017 and 2018.
